May 1st – In Memoriam: Charles “Chucky” Sakai Mental Health Hero

Charles Sakai 2011 Mental Health Hero Cartoon-A-Thon by Chato Stewart

We start off this year’s Cartoon-A-Thon in Memoriam for one of last year’s Mental Health Heroes, Charles “Chucky” Sakais. Charles Mitsuo Sakai died on January 25, 2012 in Aurora, Colorado. He was 63 and had a very advanced form of cancer.

I met Charles who let me affectionately call him “Chucky” at the DBSA 2011 conference. We were both part of David Granirer’s Stand-Up For Mental Health comedy show. (See his act below.)

You should remember Chucky as one of our Mental Health Heroes. What a hero he was! Always willing to go the extra mile in his advocacy for mental health! I was happy to meet up with him again at Alternatives in Orlando and give him the caricature original.

I’ll miss you my friend – sleep in peace. A hui hou kakou
